Joey Armstrong Impresses Customer with a Good Catch


By: Troy Gisclair

Recently, Expeditor Joey Armstrong was on duty at Chevron Shorebase in Port Fourchon when he noticed something was not right on several diesel tanks that had come from a vendor to be shipped. He called Chevron Shorebase Coordinator Kristian Armstrong to the yard to show him the tanks. Joey pointed out that the tanks weren’t using the updated Global Harmonized System (GHS) labeling process.

Kristian then called the vendor, and it became clear that they needed a little help on how to properly label their chemicals. The warehouse manager said they had been trying their best, but they really hadn’t been called out on it from anyone before. Apparently, they would use a GHS label for the chemicals that they received from another vendor who provided them with the chemical. When it came to their own chemical, like diesel, they didn’t understand the process.

According to Kristian, Chevron adopted this process years ago. Now, the vendor is going to implement the correct process moving forward and will start labeling their totes properly.

Kristian said, “Joey made a simple but important stop work authority that was not critical to the lifting and rigging side of things that we usually focus on. Hopefully this will educate the vendor and improve their process moving forward. It is a good safety share showing that every little catch matters. Thanks, Joey!”
